What Type of Roof is Best For Me?

You need a new roof. Now's the time to make an extremely important decision: What type of roof is best for you?. After all, the roof you have installed will go a long way towards improving your home’s appearance and increase its overall value. Therefore, choosing between roofing materials is a choice that merits some thought. It is a substantial investment in your home after all. Read on for a helpful guide on the most common types of roofing materials and why they might be the choice for you:

Asphalt Shingles

Homeowners universally choose asphalt or tar shingles for their affordability and durability. They also come in a wide variety of colors and styles, allowing you to match your shingles to your home’s exterior. There are three common types of asphalt shingles. They are explained below:

  • Three-Tab Shingles: These shingles can last up to two decades in the right conditions. They are more prone to blowing off and offer less aesthetic options. However, they are affordable. In fact, many describe this shingle as “affordability meeting functionality.”
  • Dimensional Shingles: Dimensional shingles are more durable than other types of asphalt shingles. In fact, they can last up to thirty years. They also have a multi-dimensional texture and appearance. According to the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturer Association (ARMA), they are the most common type of asphalt shingle used today. They cost more than the three-tab variety, though.
  • Luxury Shingles: These also offer a multi-dimensional appearance and are durable. They are more affordable than cedar or slate alternatives and are often used to replicate the look of a cedar shake or natural slate roof but at a fraction of the cost.

Tile Roofs

Admittedly, tile roofs are more expensive than their shingle counterparts. In fact, sometimes, they can range as much as double the cost of shingles. However, the life expectancy of tile is much better, actually about double that of shingles, meaning you get what you pay for, as they will outlast shingles. In fact, some tile shingles have been known to last as long as 50 years! Homeowners often choose tile roofs when bad weather and high winds are a frequent problem. Tile can withstand much more in terms of foul weather when compared with other types of roofing materials.

Cedar Shake

Wood shake shingles have been used for centuries. They are split from logs and have a rough-hewn, textured effect. Cedar is the most popular of all wood shake shingles, but southern yellow pine is also pretty popular. Wood shake shingles can be treated chemically to create a fire-retardant barrier for your home. The wood look is hard to beat if your home is older, making is a historically appropriate choice. If treated properly and well maintained, cedar shake shingles will last up to 30 years, they are also resistant to insects but do not handle large amounts of rain well. Cedar is also a bit high maintenance and must be kept clean of debris, branches, and leaves to avoid mildew growth and other problems.

Top 5 Signs You Need a New Roof

Your home’s roof is likely something you don’t give much thought to on a regular basis, at least until it starts to fail. Then, you have to scramble to get repairs or a replacement scheduled. Thankfully, there are some signs to look for that will give you a bit more advance notice that your roof will need replacing soon. Seeing these signs means you probably need to replace your roof sooner rather than later:

1.) Roof Leaks

This is the most obvious sign your roof is wearing out. If you find water in your home after a heavy rain, you can assume you have a roof leak somewhere. Check your attic after significant rain, because most roof leaks begin to show themselves there first before making their way into the rest of your home. Once a leak is bad enough, you will also notice water stains on interior walls and/or a room’s ceiling.

2.) Missing Granules

This sign might not be visible from your yard and often requires you to get on your roof to see. However, sometimes, you will see granules from your shingles in your gutters or on the ground. Obviously, if you find them there, it indicates they are no longer on the shingle. Missing granules can cause water to leak through the now exposed fibers of a shingle, doing damage to your home.

It indicates a shingle is wearing out and needs replacing.

3.) Curled or Cracked Shingles

Another sign of a worn-out roof is the presence of curled shingles, especially in asphalt shingles. This could indicate that there is moisture trapped under the shingles, which can cause mold to grow. Cracked shingles also show that roof shingles are wearing out. In most cases, you will see cracked shingles in a fiber-based asphalt shingle.

4.) Notice a Neighborhood Trend

While it doesn’t necessarily hold true in all instances, in many cases, if you notice your neighbors are replacing their roofs, you might want to inspect your own. Most subdivision homes are constructed around the same time, so if everyone else’s homes need to be reroofed, you might be in need of a roof replacement as well.

5.) Recent Storm: Hail Damage or Strong Storm Damage

If you have a significant hail storm, it’s a good idea to look at your roof. In many cases, hail damage, especially if they are significant in size, will damage a roof so badly it needs to be replaced. Therefore, if you know you have experienced some rough weather recently, it’s a good idea to at least give your roof a quick inspection to see if you have damage. Thankfully, in many cases, your homeowner's insurance will cover the cost of repairing or replacing a roof damaged by weather such as hail.

What to Do Now

If you suspect your roof is worn or damaged in any way, it’s time to call in a professional roofer to look it over. In some cases, you can get by with a simple repair, in others, you need a complete replacement. Either way, the experts will be able to guide you through the process.

What Should You Know Before Replacing Your Roof?

Your home is one of your most substantial investments, and your home’s roof matters in ensuring your home look great and are protected from the elements. Therefore, when you are ready for roof replacement, you likely have some questions. Read on to learn the answers to some commonly asked questions about roof replacement:

How Much Can You Expect to Pay?

Of course, the cost of a new roof will vary based on the materials you choose, and where you live. They range from $6,000 to $7,500 for a basic 3-tab, 25 year shingle to the most expensive option ranging from $17,000 to $30,600 for a clay tile roof. There are many shingle options in between these two scopes.

How Long Does a Roof Replacement Take?

Obviously, you have to wait for the weather to cooperate and work around the roofer’s schedule. However, once you get the logistics of that figured out, the task of replacing your roof should only take from two to three days. If you need major repairs, or there is a weather incident, then it can extend a bit but most take less than a week.

Can You Stay in Your Home While it is Being Reroofed?

Yes. However, with that being said, if you work out of your home and need quiet, you might be better off going somewhere else during the day if possible. Roofing is loud, so it can disrupt whatever is going on in your home. You can stay in your home, though if you prefer while the job is completed. If you do stay home during the roofing process and have children or pets, it’s a good idea to set safety guidelines to ensure they are not injured if they walk outdoors. In most cases, it’s best to keep both kids and pets inside while a roofing job is taking place to prevent any accident from occurring. If you have pets, it’s also important to be mindful of the noise and realize it might negatively affect them. Secure them in the lowest level of your home to prevent them from getting too anxious.

Should You Get Several Estimates?

Yes, the general rule of thumb for home improvement projects is to get three estimates from three different companies or contractors before making your choice. However, in reality, you should get as many estimates as you feel you need to make an educated decision you feel good about. That might be more than three but could be less. Ask questions of any potential roofer such as:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • What kind of experience do you have with this type of roofing product?
  • How much will it cost?

What Happens if a Roof Leaks After Being Replaced?

If your roof continues to leak even after a complete replacement, this could indicate there was an issue or misdiagnosis of a roofing problem. For example, it might mean the true cause of your leak wasn’t adequately fixed or identified by your roofer. Of course, it could mean something else entirely is going on like your home settling. A reputable roofer will likely address any and all issues, such as leaks, that occur after roof installation.
